About TFF

"Many of us learned french at school, university or later in life by visiting France on holiday but who keeps practicing and improving it?"

 

Originally from France, Gérard has been living and working in England for more than 25 years and is very familiar with the culture and mentality of the country.

He has a very good knowledge and understanding of English and French grammar and can easily and clearly refer to both in his teaching. 

Dynamic, creative and very reliable Gérard offers a great range of resources and activities using French language.
